How To Heat And Cool Your Home More Efficiently?

When your home is built properly, you usually do not have to worry a lot about energy consumption for heating and cooling. Unfortunately, most homeowners do have to take this into consideration, as their home might be lacking, or their HVAC system may be outdated. To keep your home cooler or warmer, here are some of our top tips.

How Can I Keep My Home Cooler?

As soon as the temperatures start rising, it is time to look at some of our cooling tips for your home. By implementing these simple tricks and tips, you can keep the temperature down a little more.

Close the curtains - If you have curtains and blinds installed in your home, make sure to keep them closed in warmer temperatures. You should also obtain some block-out curtains, which will keep the sunlight and the heat out of your home.

Surround your home with trees - Strategically placed trees can provide a lot of shade for your home, which in turn will keep your home a lot cooler. Of course, trees need time to grow, so this is something that should be done very early on to reap the benefits later.

Adjust the thermostat - If you have an air conditioner, but you energy costs have risen considerably, put your thermostat higher by a single degree. Doing so can save you 10% on your utility bill.

When operating costs get too high, it may be a good idea to look at an air conditioner upgrade. If your air conditioning is outdated, it can start to cost a lot more to run. So, an upgrade could actually turn out more affordable in the long run.

Open windows after dark - Once it gets a little darker, the temperatures outside get cooler. By opening the windows after dark, you can get a nice little breeze inside your home and reduce the temperature. Of course, always make sure you do not leave any windows open when you aren't at home.

The iced fan - When you do not have an air conditioner, you can still get your home a little cooler by placing some ice in front of your fan. Grab a big block of ice and position it in front of your fan. The closer to the floor your fan is, the cooler the air you can circulate inside your home.

How Can I Keep My Home Warmer?

When your home gets a little too cold when temperatures outside reach an all-time low, it is time to look at some of our heating tips.

The curtain trick - Keeping your curtains open when the sunlight hits the windows is the best way to get some free heating inside your home. However, be sure to close the windows after dark, as this will provide some insulation and prevent cold from entering your home.

Heating timers - Is your heating costing you loads of money? If so, you can consider investing in some heating timers. Programmable heating has shown to increase the effectiveness of your heating system, but also reduce the overall cost of your heating bill.

Don't obstruct your radiator - When you place large pieces of furniture in front of your radiator, the radiator is not going to be that effective. The furniture will start to absorb heat, which means you will lose a lot of warmth. So, be sure to keep sofas, clothes and other obstructions away from your radiators.

Install more insulation - When your home is not properly insulated, a significant amount of heat may be lost from your home. Subsequently, heating cost can increase, and you may never reach a comfortable temperature.

Check for draughts - During the colder months, it is a good idea to check for draughts. A draught is a clear sign that your home is not properly insulated. It can also be an indicator that some of your doors and windows are not sealed correctly.

Heat reflection - To get the most from your heating installation, you can use the principle of heat reflection. By installing some simple radiator panels, you can reflect some of the generated heat back into the room. Evidently, this can make your entire heating system more effective and less expensive.
